If Eric ever lurks....

Holgate School is being demolished, to provide a car park for the academy school formed by the amalgamation of Holgate and another school.

I think my husband taught at Holgate School at one stage, Blackberrycottage.  I will check with him.  I think it was the one he talked about where everyone was basically locked in and no one able to come in off the street.  Very different from the school here.

Hello Caro,
Holgate School is the one nearest to Barnsley town centre, it was built approximately 100 years ago, and had a very nice brick frontage which unfortunately has now gone. The Girl's High School (which had a more ornate frontage) was made into apartments, but the need for a car park was greater than the demand for apartments it seems. Is your son still teaching in the Barnsley area?

Eric? would that be the translator guy who posted as Havisham on the original beeb board and the MSN board? He seemed to disapear when the MSN board shut, I didn't know he could possibly be still around, I wonder why he doesn't post because as I remember he was never shy at stating his opinion!

I'm not sure he always felt appreciated here... I think he may be a member of this board, but whether he lurks or not I couldn't say.

I did wonder what on earth this thread was about....   Smile

My son teaches at the new Darton College, blackberry cottage.  And it was Maltby which locked everyone up.  Dreadful place, Maltby.  The only dreadful place I've found in Maltby, though Morecombe was very sad when we saw it, but I gather is being replenished.  He did teach at Holgate though, too (supply teaching).

I did check that Eric was listed as a member before I posted it. Well someone called Eric is. As I recall, Eric the translator, cantankerous as he was, attended Holgate or his father taught there. Like many others my reading would be too low brow for him.
